The ABA provides law students with national access to a career-building network of your peers, lawyers, judges and other law professionals. Participate in a practical skills competition, enter a writing competition, or join a practice specific entity.
As an ABA Law Student Division member, you are eligible for election or nomination one of over 100 Division leadership positions on the national, regional or local level. These positions entail interaction with practicing attorneys, advocating the needs of law students and helping shape ABA Law Student Division policy.
Many ABA Sections and Divisions offer Law Student Division members opportunities to participate in summer internships and judicial clerkships. We have compiled an online list of these resources to get you started as you embark on your legal education and/or beginning your legal career.
The ABA offers a few scholarships for minority law students seeking careers in specific areas of the law. Entering one of the many writing competitions offered by the ABA is also an option for students from all walks of life to find a little extra funding for their education.
